Embracing Innovation at Every Level.


The modern distribution facility is a substantially more sophisticated operation than that of a generation ago. From automated storage and material handling to digital inventory and order management, today’s industry is dependent on a steady stream of data and uncompromising efficiency.


Gray understands the industry’s dynamic nature, where consumer expectations are sky-high and margins are razor thin. Recent omnichannel strategies demand operational flexibility. The emergence of cold storage requires precise environmental controls. To develop adaptive, efficient solutions to your constantly shifting needs, we hold true to our No. 2 core value—we are customer and relationship driven. We view a distribution center project as more than a logistical operation; it’s an ongoing opportunity for continuous improvement and unprecedented insight into every stage of your operations.

Gray’s fully integrated service offering provides the flexibility and breadth of expertise needed to implement creative, customized solutions. From cold chain logistics to fully automated dark facilities, we tailor our services to the unique strengths of every project, ensuring our designs meet the acute needs of our customers and facilitate their operational excellence.
